I read this book after kiss of steel but I really should have read the novella the tarnished knight first as it sets the story up nicely and adds to the tension. Nobody is quite so sullen and tortured as Will, he has good reason though, he has bee very badly treated most of his life, he finds it hard to trust people, especially women. Unfortunately for him Lena is intend on pushing his boundaries and winding him up. He might have been ok if it were not for the chemistry between then, when he lets his guard down things very quickly get out of control. And of course there in political intrigue, drama and adventure along the way. It is a cracking story, with lots of drama and suspense, and it unravels more of the ins and outs of the complex world that these books inhabit. The only part I did not like was the very end, I don't want to give away any spoilers but it just tied things up a little neatly in a way that did not quite ring true. The rest is great though.

Will kissed her lips lightly, chasing away the questioning tone. "You know I love you," he said. Her body quivered against his, but he pressed a finger to her lips, stalling her. "I would die for you," he told her. "I'd kill for you. I faced down mechanical squid, rampagin' humanists, and lessons in etiquette for you. I danced at a ball for you."

Great sequel to 'Kiss of Steel' part of the London Steampunk series.

This is Lena and Will the beast of whitechapel's story. The pair have a history which began in the first book and came to a head in the novella 'Tarnished Knight' when they kissed. It has been a year since that incident and the pair continue to avoid each other however a situation forces them to reconnect igniting the old flame they had both tried to forget.

I have loved reading about Will so I was thrilled we would finally get his story. He is a werewolf and labelled the 'Beast of Whitechapel' with a fearsome reputation which no one dares mess with. He had a terrible childhood, he was sold by his mother and then caged and tormented until Blade his boss saved him. This shaped his life, he is untrusting of people, women especially, anti-social and lives up to his violent reputation. Lena on the other hand is a social butterfly, flirtatious, eloquent, the perfect lady. The pair are total opposites but whenever they are in each other's company they can't ignore the chemistry and tension between them.

The pair bring the best and worst out in each other. Will struggles to contain his beast around Lena making him do stupid things and Lena constantly goads him. However the pair also support each other.

By Sarah (Feeling Fictional) TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 9 Sept. 2013
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lena always wanted to claim her place within the Echelon so she was horrified when her family had to go into hiding in the slums of Whitechapel. Having the chance to go back to polite society and have her debut should be a dream come true but as much as she loves the beautiful dresses and the glittering balls she now sees a much darker and more sinister side to things than she did as an idealistic young girl. She's decided to put her new position to good use though and has become a spy for the humanist movement. Unfortunately the people she has allied herself with may have more sinister motives than she could ever have guessed at and it isn't long before she realises that she's in over her head. Will has spent years trying to avoid the Echelon but when he realises what Lena has got herself caught up in he knows he must do anything he can to protect her. As the passion ignites between them they find each other hard to resist but can Will let go of his fear of hurting her enough to let her into his life as well as his heart?

I loved both Kiss of Steel and the Tarnished Knight novella so I couldn't wait to get started on Heart of Iron and I'm happy to say that it was the best book of the series so far. It is so easy to get caught up in the world that Bec McMaster has created and once I'm there I don't want to leave. I love the historical setting and the added steampunk and paranormal elements that all combine together to create a dark and gritty world. If you haven't started reading these books yet you really don't know what you're missing so grab a copy of Kiss of Steel immediately and dive right in!

I have loved all of the books in this series so far, the characters are lovable rogues and you find yourself routing for them from the beginning, I was really looking forward to this book, as my interest in the young Will Carver aka The Beast of Whitechapel was certainly piqued from the snippets of him that you got in books 1 and 1.5, so I was really looking forward to sinking my teeth into a book about Will, and I wasn't disappointed.

Our main characters in this book are Lena (Honoria's younger sister) and Will (Blade's second in command). Lena left whitechapel a year ago to return to the white tower and the Echelon as her half brother's (Leo Barrons) Ward because she felt there was nothing left for her in whitechapel following Will's knock back when she kissed him and he ended up leaving the Warren to avoid her. Will has struggled throughout the years they spent living under the same roof, he has a real disinterest towards women after his mother sold him to a travelling showman for £5 after he caught the loupe virus (hence him being verwulfen) and he spent 10 years locked in a cage as entertainment for the Blue Blood of the Echilon, before Blade rescued him. The only other female he has ever trusted is Esme, Blade's housekeeper. So when Lena arrives at the Warren and flirts with him, he doesn't know how to handle it, and she stirs dangerous emotions and needs within him that he doesn't know how to deal with, so for fear or hurting or infecting her with the loupe virus he tries to distance himself. Only he cant actually keep away, but can he control himself enough not to hurt her? and can he keep his hands off her so that he doesn't infect her?
